Excited to continue to share our progress for our Guest Bathroom Makeover!
This past week we for the guest bathroom makeover, we focused on shopping for tile, fixtures, etc. And let’s be honest, that’s the fun part! We also decided to take the plunge and redo the bathroom floor as well. Eek!
You can view our previous ORC room makeovers here:
As much as I loved doing the demo, I wanted to leave it to a professional to actually install the tile. We’re in a little bit of a holding pattern until he can start, but we went ahead and started gathering all of the materials. I thought for sure I would do subway tile for the tub surround. But after going to Floor & Decor on a few occasions, I have decided to switch gears and go with a tile that is still classic, but definitely very different than what I envisioned.
For the floor, we are doing a honeycomb tile, which I love! And we’ll do the same grout throughout to help blend the two tiles together.
We’ll be painting the vanity, but it is in desperate need of a new top. We wanted to keep it light, so we just went with a pure white vanity top.
One of the hardest things to find has been a tub faucet. There isn’t a shower in this bathroom and we can’t really add one due to the construction and size of the room. Because of this, I definitely wanted to include a handheld shower in an antique brass. The options I was finding either had to be attached to the wall (which doesn’t work for us), was out of stock, or was very expensive. I ended up finding this awesome faucet on Amazon for a great deal. And I think it will work…fingers crossed!
To stick with the antique brass look, we’ve also gotten great accent pieces to incorporate like a towel ring and hooks from Pottery Barn.
We also lucked out and found a light fixture at the Habitat Restore that will be perfect in the bathroom makeover. It just needs a little paint to match the look of what we’re going for. Mom also has these prints that I would love to incorporate into the space.
There is still a lot to do, and of course I am out of town this weekend, but we always work great under pressure. Next weekend we hope to get a lot of things checked off the list for the bathroom makeover. And then the tile install will begin!
